From the sheng and shou TTB (10s, 20s, 30s, 40s, 60s steeps). 2 grams in 2 oz.
Lovely nose: I think floral, but can understand people calling it apple or apricot. This is a very nice tea in a light style: slightly acidic with layers of light flavors. Good cha qi. As it cools, there is a darker edge. 2nd steep: Mild, slightly grassy aroma. The taste starts woody, but an undercurrent develops that starts like citrus but quickly becomes a different kind of fruit. It’s hard to separate the taste from the qi: I think I’d enjoy just about anything when I feel this good.
4th, 5th steeps: I was just about set to buy this, but suddenly the taste just went away!. Bland. 6th(2m): Soapy.
I don’t know what happened. I was really enjoying this tea, but it just quit on me. It is probably a fair value just based on the first three steeps, but the disappointment from the later steeps kind of put me off. I gave it a fairly high rating because the first three steeps were really pleasant. You have to enjoy the lighter style of pu-erh; if you like power, look elsewhere.
